Different Sheets

Hilfiger Full Size Flat Bed Sheet  - Aqua

I have always been a stickler for cotton sheets.

Not cotton blend, mind you, just the 100% cotton ones.

Both the flannel and the jersey sheets have to be cotton too.

I love the breathablity, smoothness, and feel of the cotton fabric.

And they don't pill like the cotton blend ones do.

Well, we are trying something new come summertime.

We found some satin sheets on sale, and we are hoping that they will be cool feeling during the hot summer months.

I am a bit concerned about them though as they are made of 100% polyester.

And they are a much thinner, lightweight fabric.

Sounds like they should be perfect - can't wait to try them.

Silver Medals

The spot price for gold and silver has risen sharply over the last few months.

Last year at this time, the spot price for silver was $18 per ounce, two years ago it was $12.

As of Friday's close, the spot price for silver was $43 an ounce.

We acquired a partial set of the Masterpieces of Raphael that was minted by the Franklin Mint back in the late 1970's and early 1980's.

We only have two of these gold plated over silver metals left from this collection.

You can find them listed here.

Google Feed

We have always used the google feed for inserting our items in the froogle marketplace.

There haven't been any problems until lately when google informed me that there was an error with our URL.

After updating, verifying, and claiming the URL again, all is looking and working fine.

Hopefully it stays that way.

Now, on to the next step - figuring out how to get a sitemap of all the products and sending that along to google too.

These are steps that are recommended to webmasters by google to help with getting exposure for your site.

And they are free to use - can't go wrong with that!

Login-in Loop Fixed

There was a slight glitch with the log-in for customers over the past couple of days.

A customer was kind enough to drop me a note, and I was finally able to get it figured out.

It had to do with the site security and the wrong code being used.

Just one little thing can make things so difficult.

And finding the answer was time consuming, but we finally found the info we needed to fix it.

Doing our best to keep us and our customers safe.

Thanks for your patience and to our customer for the heads up!
